PC Erotic is the new age porn mag exploring the future of sex and tech

Pinched from Dazed Digital

Magazines have long been vehicles for the sexual revolution. From 1970s feminists who turned to titles like Spare Rib to reclaim their sexuality by publishing stories of female masturbation and the enigmatic female orgasm for the first time, to the fetishists who immortalised the PVC laced, sweat oozing reality of the global fetish world in print epics like London’s Skin Two. Now, the zine as an art form turns to the minds of modern-day sexual futurists trying to grasp a new kind of sexual evolution characterised by the intersection of sex and technology, using the magazine to posture questions such as: will technology fuck us, or we will fuck technology?

For artist, model, and editor Iris Luz, it’s this question that drives her artistry and leads her newly released Ditto publication, PC Erotic: a trash-tastic and satirical, yet wildly investigative take on the future of sex that celebrates and attempts to understand the complex issues raised by human sexuality and technology. Issue One of PC Erotic, released today, hosts features that largely open the scope of what sex is and how it will unfold in the face of our technological future.

“The idea of mixing technology and sexuality for PC Erotic”, explains Luz, ”came about because at the time of the first creating the concept there were a lot of controversies surrounding the internet and sexuality. We’re at a very odd point in society where we’re facing a whole new realm of ideas and concepts thanks to technology, but we have no idea how to approach them or lead a coherent discussion about them without instilling fear (Black Mirror and your paranoid aunt on Facebook aren’t helping). Media frenzies like the back page censorship debate or the face app scandal got me thinking about how this is a time for us to reflect morally on where we stand because whether you like it or not, technology now more than ever is a physical extension of ourselves. Additionally, I’ve always been obsessed with the idea of the ‘ideal woman’ and beauty as power (whatever concept of beauty that is).”

Digital sex artist Maria Forque graces Issue One’s first cover, appearing as a genderless, extra-limbed airbrushed alien shot by emerging photographer Viktor Naumovski. Forque is usually found putting out work via her Instagram, that once included a photo series of used underwear, a visual manifesto on the damaging effects of Instagram censorship on nudity, and earlier this year she released an ASMR trance DJ set aimed at combining music, sex, and mediation to create a new sensory experience.
